Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti stood on stage in front of the full International Olympic Committee in Lima on Wednesday as the last man speaking in support of Los Angeles’ bid to host the 2028 Olympics.At that point, it was already a foregone conclusion that LA would receive the 2028 Games after deferring to Paris in the running to host the Games in 2024. Garcetti smiled widely as he awaited confirmation that his city would soon be a “candidate city” no longer.“The people of Los Angeles, we don’t perceive the 2028 Games as 11 years in the future—we know that our Games start today,” Garcetti said.The mayor was referring to the preparations required for a city to pull off a successful Olympics—in a sustainable manner and within the budget, the LA 2028 organizing committee has promised.
